Road Trip Idea #11: Give Yourself a Break

Doesn’t everything seem harder? You’re working from home while home-schooling while taking on minor home improvements while taking care of everyone else! Give yourself a break in Western Mass. Check into a lovely hotel room (super clean due to increased cleaning and safety protocols) then enjoy a spa treatment. After that, how does a little shopping sound followed by a gourmet meal cooked just for you? Add a cocktail and you have a getaway guaranteed to relax and recharge. Grab a friend or maybe even your significant other and hit the road to Western Mass.

Here are some of our best suggestions to make your getaway special:
